Abstract/Summary

In recent years, the volcanology community has begun to acknowledge the need to better organise and integrate their data to enable their research; however a key issue to resolve is how to integrate databases at a volcano or national scale in such a way that we can expand them to a regional and ultimately global scale and, through various tools, be able to share the data for effective research. By presenting examples of recent collaborations, we demonstrate the need to adopt common methodologies for data collation, integration and common vocabularies for QA procedures. Through the GVM network, we are moving towards an integrated and interdisciplinary information platform that brings together the multitude of volcanic datasets with data discovery, access and download tools for scientists. The ultimate goal is to enable linkages with other research data systems by providing programmable interfaces to extend data discoverability to regional and global scales for broader scientific research.
